TSA officers discovered a gun hidden inside a raw chicken at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.
The TSA posted an image of the handgun and chicken on Instagram.
It captioned the picture with a poem.
"We hate to beak it to you here, but stuffing a firearm in your holiday bird for travel is just a baste of time," the TSA wrote.
Jokes aside, passengers cannot pack a firearm in carry-on luggage.
"You may transport unloaded firearms in a locked hard-sided container as checked baggage only," the TSA states on its website.
Attempting to pass a firearm through a security checkpoint could lead to criminal or civil penalties. TSA did not say what happened to the person attempting to get their gun through security in the chicken.
